Magnification 40x
Magnification 1000x
Magnification 2500x

Magnification is the ability of your microscope to make small objects seem larger. As the magnification increases the area being viewed will be decrease is size but the detail of the area being viewed will improve.

Amscope microscopes come with multiple magnifications to aid you in finding the proper magnification for viewing each specimen.

Camera Connection Types

When comparing 2.0 and 3.0 there are few major differences. First the transfer rates. USB 2.0 offers transfer rates of 480 Mbps and USB 3.0 offers transfer rates of 4.8 Gbps - that's 10 times faster.

Camera Resolution

The most important factor in ensuring successful microscopic imaging is choosing the appropriate optics and camera for your application that gives you more data and higher image quality. When selecting a microscope camera, it is best to base your decision on the most important requirements for your microscopic observation.

IQCrew's Science Discovery Series is designed to inspire kids to learn more about science. The premium microscope kit is equipped with a 40X-500X inverted microscope, a 1000 Facts About Insects book by National Geographic Kids, 10 pieces insect prepared slides and .3 megapixel digital camera with patent-pending Kid's Friendly Software - specifically designed to improve a child’s science and computer skills at the same time.

Our new inverted design provides a big advantage over conventional microscopes, by allowing both traditional specimen slides and liquids to be used. By moving the microscope's lenses under the specimen stage, there's plenty room on top. A Petri dish can be used to hold liquid samples like pond water, hatching brine shrimp, or growing crystals. The inverted design also lets you adjust the focus without moving the stage, which could disturb the specimen.

To get things started, this learning kit includes some prepared slides for viewing right out of the box. It also includes materials to prepare your own samples, like a Petri dish and blank slides. There is a graduated cylinder for measuring, and a pipette for easily transferring liquid samples. Forceps, a probe, and a stirring rod are also included for preparing and positioning specimens.

Included in the Deluxe Insect Exploration Kit is the acclaimed book - 1000 Facts About Insects - by National Geographic Kids. Great for helping your child to improve reading skills.

This kit also includes a 1000 Facts About Insects by National Geographic Kids and 10-piece Insect Specimen set with 30 insect specimens (3 specimens per slide). They are excellent for educational use and is perfect for all levels of student study including home school program.
